Health Insurance – Oregon

All students are required to have active health insurance coverage for the entire school year. We encourage you to seek a health insurance plan that meets your specific needs. There are many companies that may be able to provide you with the coverage you need for your specific health concerns.

University Student Affairs hosted a Health Insurance Information session on September 10, 2014.  Click here to watch. Topics of discussion include: Ascension benefits, Personal Insurance Administrators, WesternU medical centers, Patient Care Center pharmacy, Covered California and questions from students.
